Princess by Design

I was recently commissioned to design and create a Disney inspired princess
version of a spunky, spirited birthday girl.

Um, YES. Yes, I will do that.
It was a blast.

Meet Clara.

Here is the original sketch, done in a Starbucks in Cambridge on a gloriously lovely day.

I don't usually do the middle step, but I wanted to make sure I liked the color concept I'd chosen.
Thought it might be fun to line them up side by side.

Here are some other color experiments. 

 This is my favorite of the color schemes I tried. 
I would wear this all the time, always, forever.

Here are some funky, in-between stages that I thought had kind of an interesting look to them.

New Neighbors

Keeping professionalism alive and well in my new office.

(He and I have a copy of this hanging in our cubicles).

They'll Hough and They'll Puff...

And they'll blow your mind!

In preparation for my trip to NYC this month to see Julianne and Derek Hough's 
I created my third installment of goofy celebrity drawings, this time a "selfie"
with the talented sibs (since I can't afford VIP tickets to take a real photo).

The following photos are from my Instagram account.

The drawing is 2.5" x 2.5"
I added this last one for scale.
